Long Time No Post!

Wow!!  I can't believe it has been almost 2.5 years since my last post!  Needless to say there have been many furniture make-overs in that time!  I have been really bad about taking "before" pictures unforunately : (  Here are a few pieces that I have done recently!

2 New Dressers And A Buffet!!


I finally have a few new pieces to show you!  And, I actually have pictures!  Both of these dressers and the buffet were in pretty good shape when I purchased them off Craigslist.  I decided to use Annie Sloan "Olive" and "Old Ochre".  I love both of these colors now.  All pieces are finished with dark and clear waxes.

Antique Buffet

I scored this antique buffet off CL.  It had some serious veneer issues, but other than that, was in great condition.  I painted it in ASCP Napoleonic Blue and then finished it off with ASCP clear wax.  Top was sanded and waxed with dark wax.

French Provincial Dining Set

I purchased this beautiful dining set off of Craigslist.  I got a steal on it.  The sellers just wanted everything gone : ).  I painted the cabinet and table and chairs in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Grey.  I then went back and painted the details in ASCP Old White.  I lightly distressed and then finished everything off with clear wax.  The top of the dining table was sanded and stained with Minwax Dark Walnut and then sealed with a clear poly.

Duck Egg Coffee Table and Side Table

Wow!  I can't believe how long it has been since my last post.  I have been really bad about taking pictures of the furniture I have been finishing!  I have been super busy painting lately, and when pieces are finished, I immediately take them to the shop to make room in the garage!  The kids get off school next week, so I am sure that is not going to change anytime soon....

I found this cute coffee table and side table at a used furniture store.  The top of the coffee table was very damaged so I ended up having to do a lot of sanding on this one.  I stained the tops of both pieces  in Minwax Dark Walnut and then sealed them with clear wax.  The bottoms are ASCP Duck Egg.  I lightly distressed and sealed with clear wax.

Antique Vanity

This cute little vanity was in need of a makeover.  The finish was terrible.  I can't find a before picture, so you are going to have to take my word for it!  I sanded and stained the top with Minwax Dark Walnut.  The base was painted in ASCP Cream: a very muted, warm buttery yellow.  I distressed and sealed the entire piece with clear wax.

Oak Buffet

I love this little antique buffet!  I sanded the top down and stained it with Minwax Dark Walnut.  The base was painted with ASCP Paris Grey.  I heavily distressed this piece and sealed it with clear wax.  I also replaced the hardware.
